An audition consists of reading sides for a scene and performing for a Casting Director and/or Casting Associate. In some cases, a Producer and/or the Director may also be present for the audition. Especially in the post-Covid era, though, creating self-tapes has become a popular and convenient alternative to in-person auditions. Actors work extensively with their Agents and Managers to develop their careers and land roles. When on set, the Actor’s main points of contact are the 1st Assistant Director, Director, and any PAs. The Makeup, Costume, and Sound Departments, Armorers, and Choreographers will also work closely with the Actors to get them ready for their scenes.
